Review by Tiger Lily
There's unfinished business in Haines City…
Cynyr Cree and his wife Aingeal have returned to the western town to protect its citizens from two men the Reaper thought he'd killed. With Cree are the other six Reapers of his team, sent there by the Shadowlords to help stamp out an impending threat to all mankind lurking in the mountains of the high desert.
Otaktay, the Jakotai brave who once owned Aingeal, has sworn to take her back from Cree and to slay the Reaper before her eyes. Teaming up a rogue Reaper, Otaktay will let nothing stand in his way of retrieving the woman he believes belongs to him.
From the blackness of space, the Triune Goddess Morrigunia keeps a close eye on Her beloved Reapers. When She senses death and danger stalking one of Her own, She returns to Terra with vengeance in Her eye and annihilation in Her black heart.
Note: While this can be read as a stand-alone story, we recommend reading WyndRiver Sinner before Reaper's Revenge.
They are both infected with a parasite that requires feeding and maintenance. He fights off poisonous snakes and she gets kidnapped, all because of their race. Can their love survive the distance? Read Reaper’s Revenge and find out.
Aingeal Cree suffered violence at the hand of her first husband and that abuse made her strong. With her second husband, she determined to survive and prosper. When her husband Cynyr is bitten, trying to keep them safe, their love is tested.
I like that Ms. Boyett-Compo writes with force and determination. You can feel the strife and valor of each character. I also liked her vivid scenes with sweeping descriptions of the landscape and inner desires of the individuals. The subplots kept the story rolling and the end left me breathless.
Ms. Boyett-Compo’s love scenes are striking. You feel the passion between the lovers in every instance, including where the sex is not explicit. Sometimes the implicit reads sexier than the explicit. Very well done.
If you like fantasy mixed with a western flair, then Reaper’s Revenge is the novella for you.
